Moms rock! We’ve all got ’em, and they’re a big part of our community (we’ve got some strong, kick-ass moms here at CFF), so I was wicked excited when I received an e-mail from Brian at CrossFit Legitimus about their upcoming CrossFit Moms competition, Mama Said Knock You Out! Events like this one can provide a goal to work towards, and add extra motivation to your workouts. I definitely don’t want to pressure anyone into competing, but I think this looks like a super cool chance to test your fitness, so I wanted to make sure to share it with all of you. It’s going to be like Mother’s Day in November, celebrated the only way CrossFit knows how, a throwdown.
